A little egg salad for Sunday

This all started out as an attempt to contrast the quotes by
Andrew Carnegie and Cervantes. A trip to
thinkexist.com and it quickly got out of hand.

The wise man puts all his eggs in one basket and watches the basket.
-Andrew Carnegie

It is part of a wise man to keep himself for tomorrow and not to
venture all his eggs in one basket.
-Cervantes

This recipe is certainly silly. It says to separate the eggs, but it
doesn’t say how far to separate them.
-Gracie Allen

Lawyers, Preachers, and Tomtit’s eggs, there are more of them
hatch’d than come to perfection.
-Poor Richard’s Almanac

A hen is only an egg’s way of making another egg.
-Samuel Butler

Omelettes are not made without breaking eggs.
-Robespierre

A true friend is someone who thinks you are a good egg even though
he knows you are slightly cracked.
-Bernard Meltzer

To eat an egg, you must break the shell.
-Jamaican proverb

Man is harder than rock and more fragile than an egg.
-Yugoslav proverb

When arguing with a stone, an egg is always wrong.
-African proverb
